I will never buy GM ever. They screwed to many people by illegally stealing their bonds. And I tell everyone who is buying a car that I know of the same thing. F you GM and your union buddies.

GM's bankruptcy was handled incorrectly, due to the US Regime.
Therefore, I will never buy a GM product, even if it is better.

You said what I was going to say. Thank God GM is fading away - the world doesn’t need that level of corruption, far too many decent people were robbed to pay off those with political connections. I will never, under any circumstances, buy or rent anything GM.

My next pickup purchase is going to be a product made right here in the USA w/ non-union labor; a Toyota Tundra.

While traveling in Peru, I noticed that Toyota seemed to be the only car driven there. And the abuse they took was simply unbelievable. I have seen Toyota sedans taken up the ides of mountains and beaten an yet they keep on going. It made such an impression on me that I am driving a Toyota today.

All of this said, then is there a manufacturer not GM nor Chrysler that doesn't overly cater to environmentalism? Toyota, like other transplants, seems to want to deliver few American-inspired designs while bringing in plenty of less-power-per-dollar I-4 golfcarts.

Pay no attention to the boycott buyer behind the curtain.

A lot of people don't realize that many "foreign" cars are made right here in the USA - with non-union labor. Thus you are actually more pro-American by purchasing a Toyota Tundra which has their engines built in Huntsville, Alabama and are assembled in San Antonio, Texas.
Now that's a good old American car and any true patriot should be proud to drive one.
Now let's consider the union-built cars in places like Michigan. You buy one of those and you are making a contribution to the Democrat Party. If you drive one of those, you might as well slap "Hillary 2016" and "Proud UAW supporter" bumper stickers on it because that is who you are supporting with your purchasing dollars.
Now I know that some here will chafe to read that and will respond to me in a not so favorable manner, but so be it. I call them as I see them.
"I wont buy anything but GM!!"
I assume that was an error in your post...
